Schedule

Day One

8:00 am meet your guide at the Yak Shack over fair trade locally roasted coffee. Plan your trip. There are several route options to discuss. This is a time to finalize any questions and make sure you haven’t forgotten your sleeping bag, or camera! Time to gear up and get the boats packed. After a kayak lesson on the dock, you will certainly enjoy launching from our carpeted kayak ramps! Paddle out to the Breton Islands for a picnic lunch and a visit with the resident colony of playful harbour seals. An afternoon paddle brings us to our camping destination of choice early enough to enjoy the camp set up and relax with the sunset before dinner. The possibility of an evening paddle with bio-luminescence under the stars a waits!

Day Two

Your leisurely morning includes a delicious and satisfying breakfast accompanied by fine coffee. We will pack up camp and get ready for another great day on the water. Options abound for interesting routes to meander our way back through this magical coastline with scenic mountain views. Lunch on day two included. We should return to the Yak Shack in Heriot Bay by late afternoon… just in time for dinner reservations.

Day Two

Your leisurely morning includes a delicious and satisfying breakfast including fine coffee. Did we mention coffee?! When we are ready, we pack up camp and get out for another great day on the water. Options abound for interesting routes to meander as we make our way to the second campsite of the trip. As we paddle we are surrounded by rugged coastal mountain views and keep our eyes well trained at spotting the wildlife surrounding us. We enjoy visiting with seals, dolphins, eagles, a wide variety of birds and loads of interesting inter-tidal life. We find a secluded beach for lunch and fill up on energy to make it to the next evening campsite. We are now in the ‘trip flow’ (away from it all) ☺ and savour this second night of camping under the stars!

Day Three

We slowly pack up the camp after a satisfying breakfast and make our way back to Heriot Bay through this magical coastline. By now our paddling skills are fine-tuned and we take pleasure in the new skills of moving with ease on the water. Lunch on day three is included. We should return to the Yak Shack in Heriot Bay by late afternoon… just in time for dinner reservations.
